evidence-based teaching, learning, nursing education, spiritual care, storytelling



  1. Garner, Shelby L.


ABSTRACT: Storytelling is an evidence-based teaching and learning strategy that engages students and promotes critical thinking. Although most nursing textbooks incorporate spiritual nursing care, the texts lack examples of how to tie evidence-based spiritual interventions to specific medical-surgical content. Stories told from the patient's perspective can communicate insights that nurses and students can use when planning spiritual care for patients. Stories shared by patients with undergraduate nursing students were effective in promoting learning and offered concrete examples of supportive spiritual resources for patients.
